How many people deliberately open their wallet or purse, take out a hundred dollar note and throw it in a rubbish bin? No one. But yet, when it comes time to sell their homes, thousands of people throw away thousands of dollars. Sure, they do it without realising what they are doing; but the result is the same – they lose a lot of money. That’s because they’ve got no experience at selling their homes. Some people only sell a home once or twice in their lives.
This little book can save you a lot of money when you’re selling what is probably your biggest financial asset, your family home. It can also save you a bit of stress. And, if you handle it wisely, it might also make the selling process a bit of fun. I sure hope so.
I wish you all the very best when you come to sell your home. If you need any extra help, give us a call on 1800 1800 18. Neil Jenman.

Thanks to all the people who helped me put this little book together. Mick Flynn from Fox’s Real Estate at Southport for giving me the idea which got the book started and for giving me help with plenty of the ‘hints’. My son, Lloyd Jenman from The Real Estate Helpers, also gave me some good tips as did my great friend Roger Gray. Thanks, too, to Michael Talarico and Tony Abboud for their input. Special thanks must go to Arthur Kolovos and his team of supporters at Real Estate Monitors & Referrals who spend their working lives finding suitable agents for home sellers. You’re all doing a fantastic job. The agents who carry the ‘Jenman Approved’ accreditation are the pride of my life. Thank you for your years of support. Without you, I wouldn’t be able to help any real estate consumers. And, as always, I save my greatest thanks for my dear wife, Reiden, who’s always at my side helping me in every possible way. Without you, I’d be lost. Thank you.
